About the course

The course introduces information theory, network theory and game theory to characterize and model systems that cannot be treated with the fully ordered or unordered interaction models of statistical physics. By combining basic knowledge and understanding within the three theories, we derive simple models to better understand fundamental mechanisms in trade and markets.
